  1. Your favorite burger.

    My favorite is one that I cook, caveman style, over a batch of mesquite coals. It must be formed from a mix of 73% lean, 27% FAT. It must be allowed to slowly absorb the flavor of some fresh ground black pepper, bathed in a shroud of melted cheddar cheese, propped up on a smoketoasted sesame seed bun and served with cottage cheese, dill pickle, green olives and a brown ale!
  2. Average Drive Carry Distance

    I asked my "mathy" 17 y.o. to describe a parabola. He said, "It is an arc" and added a hand gesture to clarify. I then asked how it might be used to describe my golf shots. He responded "Well, Dad, I only know how to do math on a 3-D level, but you do hit a flat parabola fairly regularly!" So I take your 70 yards and add 20, then subtract 2 strokes, then add a 3 putt and realize that a round of 100 is a fine day for this old man!
  3. Greetings from No Man's Land

    Hi everyone. New to the Sand Trap and fairly new to golf (probably less than 20 rounds in my life) I play in the wind of course, if you don't play in the wind in the Oklahoma Panhandle, you don't play at all I have enjoyed reading about this silly game we are obsessed with on this forum. I am looking forward to learning a bit more!
  4. Average Drive Carry Distance

    Just to be fair - I don't have an average. My drives generally carry around 200 yard, but if I could straighten out the parabola, I'm sure it would add 50 yards! Mainly I whack my 3i around 180 or my 5i around 140 and stay on the fairway.
  5. Sunglasses

    I always wear either my prescription glasses with photogray lenses or contacts and sunglasses. My biggest issue is not the light, but the wind here in the panhandle.
  6. What Do You Do for a Living?

    I am a high school agriculture teacher. I am adding horticulture and turf management classes to my program next year, so this actually playing golf and surfing this site could be considered research! I am a husband of 1 and father of 3 (both full time jobs). My oldest is a member of the HS golf team (#3) so playing with dad is sort of like practice. Golf is my newest obsession, followed closely by bicycling, banjos, guitars and metal fabrication. Troy
